Dear colleagues,
Does anyone out there have any experience or point me to a study in
which DEXA bone densitometry (a.k.a. DXA) has been performed with a polymer
or fiberglass type cast in place? The distal forearm is of particular
interest . Can the BMD be compared successfully (perhaps with some
adjustment) to data taken without a cast?

I will post your replies.

Thanks,
Joe Spadaro
